After completing an Architecture degree, Justine returned to education in 2011, undertaking an Art Foundation at the Mary Ward Centre. Subsequently, Justine earned a First-Class Honors degree in Fine Art at UEL, focused on Sculpture and Printmaking. Following years of developing her practice at the Bomb Factory in Islington, where she had her first solo exhibition, Justine received a scholarship funded by Anthony Gormley's foundation to pursue an MAFA at CSM, UAL, graduating with First-Class. There, Justine refined her practice of casting furniture with fabric and household paint to create imprints, alongside incorporating filmmaking to add layers her work. Justine is currently in the 2nd year of a part-time 5-year Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at UEL.  Becoming a single mother age 20, Justine has navigated a lifetime of responsibilities, including co-parenting her granddaughter. 
Justine Hounam is both a sculptor and filmmaker based in London, and her artistic practice revolves around exploring the connections between individuals, their homes, and household objects, symbolising physical, psychological, and metaphorical aspects of identity.
